Greetings All - I'm a Mom with a son determined to become a Marine. A number of you have been very helpful over on the CC forum and this forum seems like a great complement. Son has been referred to the Foundation program by USNA Admissions, so potential Class of 2013 at USNA. Paperwork from Foundation is due soon so son will be trying to figure out which of all those schools he should put down as 'preferences'. NROTC Scholarship recruiters are pitching 'normal' college experience as well. Acceptances to University of Colorado-Boulder, University of Arizona, and Oregon State in hand.
